Battlefield 5: War in the Pacific will bring back Battlefield 1942’s Wake Island map
Pick up Battlefield 5 Year 2 Edition to jump in with some bonuses.
Battlefield 5 has entered the Pacific Theater of World War 2, and if the excitement of returning to classic maps like Wake Island is enough to finally get you into BF5, a new edition of the game can get you caught up quick. The fifth chapter of Battlefield 5 is titled War in the Pacific, and it focuses entirely on battles between the U.S. Armed Forces and the Imperial Japanese Army, neither of which were previously represented in the game.
The new chapter arrives with two maps: Iwo Jima and Pacific Storm, where “the weather is as treacherous as your foes” (try putting that on a tourism brochure). The return of Wake Island will come in December, and EA says it will retain the distinct horseshoe-shaped layout of the original.
On top of the maps, a bundle of new weapons and vehicles have been added to the game for each faction to use, and even more will be up for unlocking as the latest Tides of War season progresses.
